Wine Description

Black Stallion Transcendent Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, crafted by winemaker Ralf Holdenried, is the crowning jewel of the Black Stallion Estate Winery portfolio. This limited-edition, reserve cuvée embodies the essence of Napa Valley’s diverse terroirs, showcasing the winery’s commitment to producing exceptional, unforgettable wines.

In the glass, this wine displays a deep, alluring ruby hue that hints at its richness. On the nose, it reveals a captivating bouquet of ripe raspberry, black plum, and subtle notes of cocoa powder, setting the stage for an indulgent experience.

Upon the first sip, the 2018 Transcendent Cabernet Sauvignon unfolds with an orchestra of flavors. Black cherry and graphite dance harmoniously on the palate, creating a symphony of dark fruit and earthy complexity. This full-bodied wine boasts a velvety texture, and its elegance is complemented by silky tannins that caress the senses. The finish is long and lingering, leaving a memorable impression that resonates.

This remarkable wine is sourced from some of Napa Valley’s most prestigious vineyards, each contributing its unique character to the blend. Grapes from elevated sites provide structure and concentrated flavors, while those from the valley floor introduce notes of tobacco and herbs, as well as the wine’s graceful tannic structure.

The winemaking process is a testament to perfectionism, with hand-harvested grapes picked in the cool morning hours to preserve their delicate flavors. The meticulous sorting and de-stemming ensure only the finest fruit is used. Cold soaking, fermentation in small steel tanks, and careful extraction techniques result in a wine rich in color and flavor, yet free from harshness. Aging for 17 months in new French oak barrels adds depth and complexity to the final product.

Black Stallion Transcendent Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 has received critical acclaim, earning an impressive 95 points from Wine Enthusiast. This velvety wine is a symphony of dark chocolate, cooked blueberries, cloves, espresso, and black currants, showcasing both power and richness. Only a limited number of cases of this extraordinary wine were produced, making it a true treasure for wine enthusiasts seeking the pinnacle of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
